I went through a stage where I hated books. I felt like I could never even find one that I liked which wasn’t some cheesy story about high school. I think as I started reading more and more I discovered so many authors books that I enjoyed that eventually now I feel like if I ever want to get a new one, all I have to do is scroll on the internet for a minute. I understand some of you may have no interest in reading but literally all these books I couldn’t put down and I would recommend them to anyone. I hope you enjoy this, make sure to like and comment if you did!
This is a two part series written by the amazing Sara Shepard, who also wrote the Pretty Little Liars books. I actually only read the second book The Good Girls however it was really good as it kept you up to date with everything as I went along so I didn’t even need to even read the first book. I am not going to give anything away but can I just say this book has the biggest plot twist EVER. It’s one of those books where you’re nearly at the end and think you know where everyone stands and a few pages to the end boom everything you thought you knew has been blown apart. To be honest I would recommend any of this author’s books they are the best.
I literally only finished this book but I enjoyed it so much. It’s pretty much the opposite of the last book, no murders or mystery, but it’s one you don’t want to put down. Basically it’s about a pair of twins who move to college, one of them is confident and goes out partying whilst the other one stays in writing fanfiction. I feel like just on this idea the book doesn’t sound the best and wouldn’t appeal to me but as you read you get so connected to the characters and the way it is written is so clever. The book is also something that a some point or the other everyone will be able to relate to. If you want a funny, heart-warming read then this is the book.
Lost and Found
I finished reading this quite recently and honestly I read it in like 3 days, I couldn’t put it down. It was such an interesting story to read and I loved how the storyline could actually happen in real life. I’d like to say there was an amazing plot twist but I feel like that’s not the way to describe it, all the way through it you knew something was up but you would have never expected the path that the ending took, or the characters. I’m really interested in stuff like kidnappings etc. and after it was over I was a bit speechless. I felt like you got to hate and love characters and you felt like you were actually there. Cat Clarke is such an amazing author and I would recommend all her books if you want thrills and to be sat on the edge of your seat.
My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece
This book is completely different to all the others I have mentioned but honestly it’s one of those that I feel no matter your age you could read and enjoy it. It follows the story of a 10 year old boy who’s sister died in a terrorist attack, and his family have been suffering to the aftermath of it ever since. His parents have split up, he had to move to the opposite end of the country but despite this he is very naïve, and he doesn’t really understand what all the fuss is about. The way this is written in so clever as you always work things out before the little boy does which makes it really funny and sad at times. I did shed a few tears reading this, which in my eyes must make it a good book as this has never happened before. It’s so cute too as there is a cat which you literally end up loving in the end.
And that’s it for this post! I could go on but I though that it might get a bit boring so I hope you enjoyed reading it. Let me know if you have any book recommendations or if you have read any of these,
